Based on the music and lyrics from Marc Shaiman and Scott Whitman, the musical “Hairspray” focuses on Tracy Turnblad in living in 1962 Baltimore, Md., and her audition for The Corny Collins Show.

After winning a spot on the show, Tracy discovers that becoming an overnight celebrity can lead to social change that the nation needs to see.
